american123 is off the scale

Fran has come out with an interesting interview similar to his brother's comments a few years ago and I think they are 100% right. Abegondo has 0 direction and there is no structure in the way the academy is developed. A few years back Fran realized this and took his son to Barcelona to La Masia just like Angelino left to Man City and now Hugo to Red Bull. If there is anything that Zas must do it is to hire an actual Academy Director with a vision from top to bottom. We were ahead of the game with great facilities and we have not produced a single player. Players from our academy have left to other places and developed well so it is clearly our system that after 10+ years we have not produced a single first team player.
